Pic of the Day: “Fast-Walking” revisited

Today we take another look at Bullet, the junkie con of James B. Harris‘ prison drama Fast-Walking (1982). It’s interesting how the shadow of Timothy’s profile is almost another character in the film itself.

Fast-Walking

Tim found himself playing a prisoner many times in his career. The role of the convict offers many rich characterization opportunities; perhaps that’s one reason why he appeared to be drawn to them. Bullet is certainly a piece of work. I do believe this is the only film in which Tim uses foul language on-screen. In this instance the character demanded it, but that was something he certainly didn’t need to depend on during his acting career. His personality was enough to make a statement.
